The Gavin Newsom Show

The Gavin Newsom Show Information

The Gavin Newsom Show is a weekly one-hour talk show hosted by the Lieutenant Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, and airing on San Francisco-based Current TV. The show features one-on-one interviews with notable residents of California, with past guests including Marissa Mayer and Sergey Brin.

Mia Haugen, a former executive at The Street, Forbes and CNN, is the executive producer.

According to Newsom, "it's a political show without politicians. Meaning, I'm in politics, I'm on a network that's dominantly political, and I happen to believe, firmly, that for politics to change, public policy needs to change, meaning the best politics is the better idea. And, we cannot restrict ourselves in the political dialogue to sourcing ideas from the politicians and pundits."


Originally, Newsom asked Current TV if they would let him use their equipment to do a YouTube channel; they rejected that request, with a proposal instead that he do his show on their network.

The show, a replacement for Countdown with Keith Olbermann, premiered on May 18, 2012, with guests Lance Armstrong, Marissa Mayer, and Nick Bilton.
